March 6th, 2017 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Alternative/Indie, Pop, Rock |

unnamed2 Hidden Gem: Airpark *Groove heavy rock/popNashville-based alternative rock/pop duo Airpark released their debut track “All The Time” and I was hooked on them. Inspired by minimalism, melody and groove-heavy percussion, bandmates Michael Ford, Jr. and Ben Ford launched the group in 2016, one year after their previous project The Apache Relay quietly called it quits.

Stream “All The Time” below. It’s off Airpark‘s first EP Early Works, Volume 1, out now via Eugenia Hall Records. In fact, stream the four-track EP, it’s pretty good!

Below find a bio on Airpark, links to follow them, and upcoming tour dates.

Travi$ Scott feat. T.I. – Animal

April 12th, 2012 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

travis scott animal Travi$ Scott feat. T.I.   AnimalTravi$ Scott has been making moves since he dropped his track “XX” produced by award winning Lex Luger. He has been meeting with many of the worlds best rappers, and on his latest hit, Animal, he got Grand Hustle’s very own T.I. to be featured on it. His fan base continues to grow, and he has yet to release his upcoming EP Owl Pharaoh, which is scheduled to release sometime before the Summer. Knowing that he has such a big fan base before his EP even dropped, I can’t even imagine how big he will be in the next months. Be on the look out, Owl Pharaoh and make sure to follow Travi$ Scott on twitter. @TrvisXX

Hidden Gem: Polaris At Noon *Electronic, Dance, Pop, Rock

February 3rd, 2012 by | Dance, Electronic Dance Music, Hidden Gem, Pop, Rock |

polaris at noon e1310134766227 Hidden Gem: Polaris At Noon *Electronic, Dance, Pop, RockI discovered Polaris At Noon original music after attending Bootleg Bar in Los Angeles. Specifically they were the openers to the show, but we missed seeing them perform but did grab their EP, En Pointe (iTunes), on the way out. The next day, I put the CD in my car and was amazed at how awesome and unique their sound is.

This Costa Mesa, CA band is led by Jason Suwito, who has guided Polaris at Noon with a sound that seamlessly fuses electronic music with pop/rock. The music has garnered great esteem from fans of The Sounds, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MSTRKRFT, and more. Personally I would compare them to a mixture of up-and-comer Capital Cities and Charlotte rock band Paper Tongues.

I love all the songs on their 5-track EP, En Pointe and highly recommend purchasing it! So below, stream and download some of the 11 tracks Polaris has uploaded to their soundcloud.

However, not giving you at least 1 song to download from their EP would not be right, so DOWNLOAD “On”, my favorite from the EP.

Make sure to follow Polaris at Noon on facebook and twitter!

Invigilators – #EP *UK hip-pop

February 2nd, 2012 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Drum & Bass, Electro, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop |

 Invigilators   #EP *UK hip popThe Invigilators, who you may remember jupming onto the scene with tracks and remixes they did with Sonny Shotz and The Dean’s List. Well Invigilators are back with a new EP, titled, #EP, a 5-track project with UK hip hop up-and-comer Ceezlin.

Here’s what Invigilators said about the brand new EP:

The first two tracks are on a pop kick, and we’ve even sampled some Bjork and Dirty Projectors in the opener… The last three are on more of a Bass music vibe, a bit heavier and dirtier, designed for the casual weekend rave.

I love this project, because besides the unique production, each of the tracks sound different from one another.

Juan Deuce & Falside – The Mechanics EP

January 12th, 2012 by | Album/Mixtape/EP Review, Hip-Hop/Rap, Music Video |

 Juan Deuce & Falside   The Mechanics EPJuan Deuce and Falside are two Providence natives who officially joined forces a little over a year ago. The subsequent fusion of their emerging styles has been nothing short of synergistic. Couple Deuce and Fal’s dynamism with the electrifying video work of Ricky Shabazz (“Guts” premiered on Rik Cordero’s The Hub Series two weeks ago), and you have yourself a bonafide trifecta.

This winter, Juan Deuce and Falside will prepare a full-length joint album. If The Mechanics EP is any indication, we’re all in for a treat. Here’s a favorite of mine off The Mechanics EP (DOWNLOAD), “Go DJ”.
Juan Deuce + Falside – “Hey DJ”
Another favorite of mine is “Guts” which is featured on Best You Never Heard 5 and the music video can be seen below. (more…)

Beat Connection: Music for the Soundtrack of Your Life

December 1st, 2011 by | Dance, Electropop, Hidden Gem |

beat connection lights 600x400 Beat Connection: Music for the Soundtrack of Your LifeBeat Connection are what I always wanted chillwave to be. With most music of their genre I feel like I get lost in the songs. Not lost as in I am so deep in the thoughts provoked by said music, lost as in I sometimes forget what the hell I’m listening to and turn it off.

But the first time I listened to Beat Connection‘s EP, Surf Noir, I put it on and 30 minutes later, I realized I hadn’t once thought of stopping it. In a time where it’s hard to get someone to listen to just one whole song, this Pacific Northwest duo have made an eight track EP that is fantastic from start to finish.

Jumping from the Daft Punk vibe of “Theme From Yours Truly”, to the blissed-out opening track “Sunburn”. My personal favorite, “Silver Screen” is a track that can’t help but make you feel like it’s summer and the sun is shining down on you. Since I like Beat Connection and live in Seattle, it’s a feeling that is both hard to come by and highly necessary this time of the year.

Stream Beat Connection‘s Surf Noir below.
